About the project
European Awareness Raising Campaign on Cyberbullying
Under the Daphne III Programme
Duration: 1st February 2013-end June 2014
According to the European Commission, Cyberbullying is repeated verbal or psychological harassment carried out by an individual or group against others. It can take many forms: mockery, insults, threats, rumours, gossip, "happy slapping", disagreeable comments or slander. Interactive online services (e-mail, chat rooms, instant messaging) and mobile phones have given bullies new opportunities and ways in which they can abuse their victims.
Objectives of the DELETE CYBERBULLYING project :
A general acknowledgement that Cyberbullying is a real and substantial danger and causes immediate and significant harm.
Set up of specific Working groups to organize an exchange of best practice about recognition, monitoring and prevention of harmful on-line communication and Cyberbullying, especially in schools and families.
Concentrate on very specific recommendations to policy and decision makers at EU and Member States levels. We will showcase examples of prevention campaigns, to which young people responded positively and had a positive impact.
In parallel to the more conceptual work we will also develop an on-line campaign material, which will be user-friendly, very visual and encourage the involvement of children and young people, who we want not only to be the end-beneficiaries of the project, but to take ownership in the issue, and be part of the social and behavioural change we would like to create.
